So very sorry for the loss of your dad. I have many memories of your family as we grew up on Third St. Those were the good days. Many days at your house with Patrice and you.
I always enjoyed speaking with your father when I would run into him.
RIP Mr. O’Laughlin.

The family of Tom O'Loughlin

I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I worked in the circulation department at the Northern Daily News from 1963 to 1997. Tom also worked there while both my older sisters had there stint working in the photography department while he was the editor. He was one of the greatest most caring bosses over the years.
